Controlled Flexible Response is a nuclear deterrence strategy that is being implemented as part of the United State's deterrence strategy. That strategy is explored and questions concerning its viability are discussed. The role of options and the necessity of knowing the military's perceptions and values concerning these options is discussed. A quantitative methodology is developed to define the military's position in regards to Controlled Flexible Response. Variables are defined, quantified, and analyzed. The results of the survey of the military's values and perceptions concerning nuclear deterrence strategies are presented. These results suggest other questions for investigation. Some of the more interesting questions are discussed.
